The Joy Luck Club Continues in Los Angeles

The East West Players have extended their stage version of Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club for two weeks. Producing Artistic Director Tim Dang, says that though the play is about a Chinese family, “the mother-daughter relationship is universal, striking a chord in all communities.”

The show will continue until December 21st, 2008 at the David Henry Hwang Theater in Downtown Los Angeles with special ticket prices for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Better yet, the EWP have also organized a series of forums to discuss the themes of The Joy Luck Club. Entitled “Beyond Presence: Her Stories Our Stores,” the Saturday forum series offers participants a chance to discuss the roles of Asian American women in relation to Tan’s best-selling book. Check their site for the forum dates, locations and special guests.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
